Every 10 years, the U.S.Census Bureau conducts a census to determine the number of people living in the United States. This census provides the basis for reapportioning Congressional seats and distributing billions of dollars in federal funding to support services and infrastructure in communities across the country.
Aventura encourages every resident to participate in the census to ensure proper representation in Congress and a fair share of federal funds for local services, infrastructures, schools, hospitals, roads, public works, and other vital programs.
Taking the census is safe and easy. Your data is confidential and protected by federal law. Your answers can only be used to produce statistics. By law, your information cannot be shared with immigration enforcement agencies, law enforcement agencies, or be used to determine your eligibility for government benefits. The Census Bureau protects information that identifies respondents or their households for 72 years. The questionnaire contains a few simple questions and only takes a few minutes to complete. This year, people will have the opportunity to complete the census online, making it easier than ever to participate. Get informed and be ready. Aventura and the County are counting on you.
